3-D ultrasound imaging performance of a row-column addressed 2-D array transducer: A measurement study

  journal={2013 IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium (IUS)},
A real-time 3-D ultrasound measurement using only 32 elements and 32 emissions is presented. The imaging quality is compared to a conventionally fully addressed array using 1024 elements and 256 emissions. The main-lobe of the measured line spread function is almost identical, but the side-lobe levels are higher for the row-column addressed array. The cystic resolution sampled at a relative intensity difference of 20 dB shows a cyst size of 5.00mm for the row-column addressed array and 2.39mm… CONTINUE READING
